Announcing the Release of the Spring 2020 Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index

Automation

If you make your living building or testing applications, you know the market is constantly changing. And there’s one question you can’t avoid.

Which platforms do I need to test against to make sure I’m not missing something important?

Perfecto continuously scans the market and maps out shifts and developments throughout the year. Why? Because building these market events into your planning cycle reduces risk and helps keep your customers happy.

And that’s exactly why we made the Mobile & Web Test Coverage Index (formerly Factors Magazine). Our latest issue for Spring 2020 is now live.

Here, we give you some insight into what’s included in the full report.

Anticipation of Android 11 and iOS 14

Like every year, we will see the launch of new major mobile OS platforms. With Android 11 and iOS 14 on the horizon, teams need to be prepared to extend their test coverage.

We recommend you leverage the beta version to ensure your test automation scripts run and that you do not experience any regressions. Plus, this gives you the chance to prepare your app for OS changes to privacy, security, UI settings, connectivity, and more. Until GA, follow upcoming beta releases so you are prepared.

Fortunately, Perfecto announced immediate support for testing against Android 11 so customers can already start validating and developing their apps as this version matures towards GA.

Similarly, iOS 14 will be released as beta most likely this June with GA coming in September. This release will come with a set of new iPhone 12 smartphones and many new features that require preparation by both the app developers and testers.

As with Android, we recommend you start testing as soon as the new iOS 12 is available as a developer preview in order to mitigate any issues early on. This will also give you a chance to take advantage of the new features in your apps.

Create a Test Coverage Strategy Customized to Your Audience

Beyond the upcoming Android and iOS releases, this latest index issue for spring 2020 dives into more emerging trends impacting developers, QA professionals, and DevOps teams alike. It also breaks down the most used phones and top web browsers around the world — so you can create a test coverage strategy that mitigates risk and targets the most popular devices among your audience.

For example, take a look at these top 10 devices in the U.S.
